Enables system designers to easily integrate Crestron lighting control products into architectural models. It just got easier for architects, lighting designers and engineers to incorporate Crestron products in their system designs. Crestron today announced that all-new Revit® files are now available on the Autodesk Seek website for many of its lighting control products including sensors, dimming and switching enclosures, and touch screens. The new files are built to be easily incorporated into designs, enabling specifiers to work faster and with more accuracy. Another benefit of the new designs is the inclusion of more detail and information. For example, the Revit files for Crestron occupancy and photo sensors provide 3-dimensional, volumetric coverage patterns to allow accurate placement and face-based hosting. Making life easier for lighting specifiers “We understand the design challenges inherent in every project, from a basic single-room switching solution to lighting systems that incorporate various technologies, depending on the space or code requirements,” said Robin van Meeuwen, CEO of Crestron International. “Our goal is to make life easier for lighting specifiers with user-friendly tools and design services to put systems together quickly.” More file formats The popular Autodesk Revit Architecture building design software enables architectural, design and engineering firms to collaborate on projects using Building Information Modelling (BIM). To ensure Crestron products are accurately integrated into architectural drawings throughout all phases of design and construction, Autodesk Seek provides Revit, DWG™ and BIM files for active design sessions in Autodesk Revit and AutoCAD® software. System designers can find Revit files for Crestron products at the Autodesk Seek website.
